Perry, Romney, Paul: Gallup Numbers Show GOP Nomination Is Three Way Race

Paul must begin to attract voters away from Romney

Perry, Romney, Paul: Gallup Numbers Show GOP Nomination Is Three Way Race

A new Gallup poll indicates clearly, perhaps for the first time, that the GOP 2012 presidential race now consists of just three candidates – Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

The nomination preference survey, conducted over the past weekend, found that Perry, Romney and Paul are the only three candidates with any realistic chance of growing their campaigns at this time. The rest of the field has lost momentum and is rapidly fading into the background.

According to Gallup, in the survey of Republicans and Republican leaning Independents, Perry leads Romney by 31% to 24%, with Ron Paul at 13%. The rest of the field make up the numbers with no one else scoring above 5%.

It appears certain that Michele Bachmann’s campaign is over now, as her numbers have halved to just 5%, with Gingrich and Cain both at 5% also.

Ron Paul remains at 13% where he was last month. In July, Paul was at 10%, according to Gallup, up from 8% in June. Of course there is still scope for Paul to pick up more support as other candidates such as Cain and Santorum begin to drop from the field.

Furthermore, in the latest poll a substantial 10% of respondents indicated that they still had no preference at this time, meaning that there is still room for Paul to gain a lot of support if he can raise awareness of his campaign.

A whopping haul of $1.1 million so far during Paul’s latest “money bomb”, also indicates that the Congressman can still compete as a top tier candidate.

Of course, the corporate media is still attempting to downplay Paul’s electability. In particular, former Bush senior staff member Bradley Blakeman attacked Ron Paul on Fox Business yesterday, following Paul’s huge California straw poll win.

“Ron Paul is neither selectable by the party to be nominated or electable by the people,” Blakeman said, adding “Let’s get real. He’s a gadfly and nothing more than that. If I were Romney and Perry, I would be thinking of a way to get Ron Paul off the stage because he is a distraction.”

Most ridiculously, Blakeman then suggested that former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman was more electable than any other GOP candidate, and that Obama could beat any of the candidates hands down except for Huntsman. One look at the latest poll reveals how asinine this suggestion is, with Huntsman scoring 1% for the second consecutive month, having failed to score above 3% throughout the entire year.

While much of his campaign has focused on going head to head with Perry, Ron Paul will also have to look to attract supporters away from Romney who does better among the smaller group of moderate/liberal Republicans.

Romney also scores better than Perry when pitted against Obama, potentially making him the clearer front runner to score points against in the long term.

Paul’s campaign today issued a statement responding to the Obama jobs and deficit plan, labeling it “A $1.5 trillion tax hike will do nothing to help us out of this mess”.

“…when the President starts targeting the so-called rich, he’s really targeting small business owners, so ultimately he’s threatening the little guy.” states Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

“The President’s plan, then, will result in a fatal broadside to the national economy from Main Street on down… This gets us nowhere as a nation, and nowhere closer to solving our economic problems.” the statement continues.

“Instead of raising taxes, this administration should cut corporate welfare, foreign welfare and end the trillion dollars overseas wars by bringing troops home.

“These would be sound policy actions, the kind that create prosperity and engender greater freedom. These are the kind of policies that a President Ron Paul will advocate for and institute to restore limited government principles and a strong America.” the statement concludes.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
